Mar-May & Sept-Nov
Chulu West Peak Climbing is considered one of the best peak climbing in the Annapurna region. Chulu West Peak is the highest of the peak, according to the trekking maps, which has been recorded at an altitude of 6400m, appropriately described as Chulu Central. Many climbers have made the mistake of considering this peak as East or West of Chulu. It is generally believed that obtaining the permit for the east or west peak will also give you access to test nearby peaks.
To climb Chulu West Peak, one must be adventurous enough to climb and have all the stamina and experience to walk the tough climb. It requires walking around 8-9 hours a day at high altitude. Physical fitness and health are also prominent factors to be eligible for such a journey. While we provide the basic services of the Sherpa guide to accompany you with the climb, you must have basic knowledge of mountaineering. Once at the top of Chulu West, climbers can witness the majestic view of Mt. Dhaulagiri, Tukuche Peak, Nilgiri, Annapurna, and many others at the ends of the view.
Why Chulu West Peak Climbing

Our trek begins from Syange/Jagat. After crossing the village of Manang, a base camp can be established within the small valley in the north. Following the base camp, the path is encountered with a smaller North-West ridge that will lead to the main peak. Any attempt to climb the peak from base camp can be done in a single day as the terrain is not conducive to any camps as the slope to the peaks is very steep. We make our return via Thorong La Pass to Muktinath to Jomsom. We take a flight from Jomsom to Pokhara and the trip concludes with a scenic drive back to Kathmandu.
